AI and Attorney Obligations Are Still Outpacing the Law

February 4, 2020, Legaltech News

Lee Tiedrich spoke with Legaltech News about lawyers’ obligations pertaining to the law and artificial intelligence. Ms. Tiedrich indicated that much like the internet in the 1990s, the growth of technologies such as AI continues to outstrip the development of the law.

Referencing State v.
